History: (Amazing Spider-Man I#50) – After Spider-Man retired, Kingpin sent Flint to organize a summit meeting of all mob bosses, including Shorty. Flint convinced the mobs to submit to Kingpin's rule then he instructed them to hit the streets in a crime spree. Flint reported back to Kingpin that many had been arrested but they had learned that Spider-Man was off the streets. Kingpin amped crime up in the streets, running the mobs like a business. Later, Frederick Foswell, the Big Man, approached Flint and Kingpin, seeking his own control of the mobs, and the furious Kingpin ordered Flint to show the Big Man out as he fired a blast from his disintegrator cane.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#51) – Kingpin assembled the mob leaders, including Blinker and Big Turk, and he sent them out on crime assignments. At Kingpin's order, Flint brought Foswell back in. Big Turk burst in, furious after having fought Spider-Man, and Kingpin had to physically fight the man to remind him who was boss as Flint stood by. Kingpin ordered Foswell to take care of newspaper publisher J. Jonah Jameson. A blindfolded Jameson was soon brought into the Kingpin and, as Flint watched, Spider-Man attacked and was defeated by Kingpin.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#52) – On Kingpin's orders, Flint and the others took Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson into the basement, where they were tied up and put in a chamber with slowly rising water. After draining the chamber, Flint opened it up expecting to see corpses but Spider-Man had protected them both with a web-shield, keeping them alive. Flint drew his gun and fired at Spider-Man but the hero easily disarmed Flint and knocked him out with a hit on the head. Kingpin was defeated in the subsequent battle and the Big Man was seemingly killed during the conflict.
(Untold Tales of Spider-Man I#20) – Crime Master sent the Vulture to kill the Kingpin and the Vulture subsequently burst through Kingpin's window, interrupting a meeting Kingpin was having with Flint. Spider-Man pulled Vulture away, ending the attack, and Flint was shocked when Kingpin ordered him to call the police, as Kingpin himself was a criminal.
(Daredevil I#174) – Flint questioned the Kingpin about what he planned to do about Daredevil and the Hand, both interfering in various criminal enterprises, and Kingpin shared his plans to pit the two against each other.
(Daredevil I#175) – Kingpin briefed Flint on the success of his criminal enterprises.
(Daredevil I#185) – As Flint stood nearby, Turk Barrett brought in "Foggy" Nelson, who was going by the name "Guts" Nelson, to connect him with the Kingpin.
(Daredevil I#186) – Turk Barrett showed up wearing
suit but Kingpin refused him employment and ordered Flint to hold all
calls while Kingpin went down to check on Vanessa Fisk, who was in
(Daredevil I#190) – Flint rushed in to find Kingpin had narrowly avoided as assassination attempt at the hands of Injun Joe's men, including Louie. Kingpin killed Louie but not before Louie killed Kingpin's man Lucas. Kingpin told Flint to keep searching for a new enforcer for him. Later, Kingpin manipulated Daredevil into stopping Injun Joe and his men. Flint followed him there and promised to turn the defeated men over to the police. He then handed over the address for the Hand to Daredevil as Kingpin had instructed. Later, Flint sent Kingpin's men, including Zeke, to help wipe out the Hand.

Louie was only seen through Daredevil's radar sense so this was the best image we had of him. -Proto-Man

two more men before Kingpin himself cornered Louie. Louie admitted
had sent him before Kingpin killed him.

(Daredevil I#180) – Turk was dividing out the loot between the three of them when Zeke reminded them to give a cut to the Kingpin but Turk was reluctant to do so.

(Daredevil I#190) – One of Kingpin's men, Zeke was sent to help wipe out a group of the Hand. He aided Black Widow, Daredevil and Stone, who'd been wounded by the ninjas.
